The State of North Carolina recently passed legislation (called NC PACES) making it possible to take on non-accredited investors for your small business. This allows you to raise funds from your friends, family, and broader community and to offer them a stake in (and a return on) the success that they are helping you to build.
After receiving questions from many local businesses interested in this new financing tool, we launched a pilot Invested Equity Crowdfunding Course in 2018. It was a great success and one of the graduates from that first class, 180 Float Spa, became the first-ever to complete an NC PACES campaign in NC!
